Applesauce Cookies

It is that time of year when my neighbor's wonderful transparent apples are ready to sauce!  They are so nice to share with us!  When I was writing the last post, I was surprised that I had not already shared this recipe, so here it is, in time for fresh applesauce.  This is a pillow cookie that I think is so wholesome I would gladly serve them to my kids for breakfast.  (After all, I serve things doused with syrup all the time...)

Applesauce Cookies
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. sugar
1 c. shortening
2 eggs

2 c. applesauce
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp. cinnamon
3 c. oatmeal
2 c. raisins (optional, but I sure put them in!)

Mix sugars, shortening, eggs, applesauce and soda well.  Stir in flour, salt and spices.  Stir in oatmeal and raisins.  Drop by teaspoonsful on greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 375 for 10 min.  Remove and cool completely before storing, otherwise the moist cookies will stick together.  Makes 7 dozen.

Notes: To help with storing, you can stack with waxed paper between layers of cookies.  I like to let them cool and then freeze them in baggies--if they haven't all been eaten.
